One of the loudest and strongest voices in investigative journalism.

Goodman has exposed human-rights violations in East Timor and Nigeria, has been arrested covering the Republican National Convention and was the first person to interview exiled Haitian President Aristide.

Now it's your chance meet the icon and ask her what the news should really be talking about.
